I’m well aware that I was there first musical boasts are empty glories at best, but for the record (heh) I bought this the first time around, when it sold no more than a handful of copies. A year later it was re-released and before long both the single and the album were inescapable, after which the band moved with impressive speed through the rising/popular/please make them go away cycle. Still, 30 million views for this, so some people out there are still listening.
